MEDIA ADVISORY NOTE

STRICTLY NOT FOR PUBLICATION

Rebekah Brooks and Andrew Coulson, along with others, currently await trial in relation to allegations of misconduct and corruption at the News of the World and various other publications.

Editors and publishers are reminded of their responsibilities under the Contempt of Court Act 1981 (the Act).

In particular, the Attorney General wishes to draw attention to the risk of publishing material which could be seen to impede or prejudice the administration of justice in these proceedings – such as by publishing details of material which has not yet been called in evidence, and which may be subject to an application to exclude.

Editors and publishers should take legal advice to ensure they are in a position to fully comply with the obligations they are subject to under the Act.
